A lack of transparency over the UK's first Omicron death prompted fury today, as a doctor told the Government to release more details to stop 'unnecessary alarm'.

Experts are demanding answers about the UK's first Omicron fatality, such as the individual's vaccination status, if they were part of group vulnerable to Covid, and if the virus was the leading cause of death.

Professor of medicine and consultant oncologist Karol Sikora said the Government was not providing the nation with enough information about the death, and that this was 'unnecessarily alarming

Danish study confirms natural immunity protects better against infection than vaccines

Covid virus
Last week, I wrote about a second major study finding that natural immunity protects better against infection than the Pfizer vaccine. Both this study and the earlier one were from Israel, and while there's every reason to believe the results generalise to other populations, it's always good to have data from multiple countries.

We now have those data in the form of a study published by the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark. I can't say the report itself is worth reading in full, since it's written in Danish. But I've posted the key figure below. It shows protection against infection for three different groups - adjusting for age, sex, comorbidities, and time of year.

New study finds the Covid-19 vaccine is to blame for 98% of cases of myocarditis among children

AHA vaccine study

The American Heart Association has published a new study which has found that 98% of all cases of Myocarditis among children are due to the mRNA Covid-19 injections.

The new study was conducted by dozens of doctors and scientists from several Universities, Children's Hospitals, and Schools of Medicine across the USA and was published on the American Heart Association's (AHA) journal Circulation on December 6th 2021.

The researchers investigated 139 children and young adults with 140 episodes of suspected myocarditis, of which 49 were confirmed and 91 were probable. Most of the patients were male (126) and the median age was 15.8 years.

Comment: Incidentally, Twitter has deemed this information from the American Heart Association "unsafe" (see: Twitter slaps 'unsafe' label on American Heart Association mRNA vaccine warning), so it may be in all of our best interests to ignore it. Listen to the AHA when they tell you to avoid saturated fat and cholesterol, but don't listen to them about vaccines. The last thing any of us want is to be exposed to information that may compromise our safe harbor within the official mainstream narrative.

"A half truth is a whole lie": The omicron variant, cross-reactive immunity, and the manufactured illusion of an unprecedented virus

"A half truth is a whole lie." — Yiddish Proverb

half truth whole lie julius ruechel 1

Figure 1: The Blind Men and the Elephant: oversimplification conceals the broader picture. But unlike the blind men in the parable, the half truths told during Covid are being told by those whose eyes are wide open to the whole lie but want to prevent you from seeing the whole elephant.
On December 2nd, 2021, a study published on medRxiv (pre-print) found that: "Population-level evidence suggests that the Omicron variant is associated with substantial ability to evade immunity from prior infection." At first glance this seems to directly contradict the large number of recent studies demonstrating long-lasting immunity to Covid after a natural infection (more than 141 studies to date). How can both of these things be true?

Meanwhile, another study published in medRxiv (preprint) on December 8th, 2021, confirmed that vaccine-escape is happening with the Omicron variant, which means that the current batch of vaccines are not capable of neutralizing the Omicron variant. Too bad for everyone that's already had 3 doses of the magic elixir. Go back to square one.

Pfizer has already reassured the world that it can have an Omicron vaccine ready by March of 2022. BioNTech's CEO has confirmed that the Omicron vaccine will be a 3-dose vaccine. And in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, when Pfizer's CEO was asked if it is good news that the Omicron variant might spread faster but be milder and therefore offer a path out of the crisis via natural immunity; he replied that this would not be good news because more spread could lead to more mutations (i.e. it might lead to still more variants). Yup, they actually asked a vaccine maker if natural immunity might provide an alternate solution to end the pandemic (no conflict of interest there🙄). Of course he said no. Of course the excuse is... the risk of more "variants". And of course his only approved solution is... more vaccines. Never let the illusion of a crisis go to waste, eh? And to top off the insanity, the FDA has now asked a federal judge to give it until 2096 to release all the data and info it used to authorize Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine (that's 75 years!). Our world is run by clowns.

There are moments when the public health messaging during Covid reminds me of the well-known parable of the blind men and the elephant wherein the blind men argue about the nature of an elephant based on the kernel of truth at their fingertips despite being utterly unable to see the larger reality standing before their eyes. But we are not living through a harmless parable. Our public health officials, vaccine makers, and media are manipulating our perception of reality. They are trying to blind us from seeing the full elephant by using deliberate oversimplification, half-truths, and out-of-context facts to manufacture (and exploit) an illusion of unprecedented danger. The most damaging lies are the ones that are built on a distortion of the truth.

So, it's time for another deep dive into the evolution of variants and the subtleties of our immune systems to get some perspective...

You will NEVER be 'fully vaccinated'

It's time everyone realised they are chasing an impossible goal that will be pushed back over the horizon, forever.
The infinite vaccine loop

Yesterday, in a statement to Parliament on the UK's planned "vaccine passport", Health Secretary Sajid Javid admitted the NHS Pass would require three shots for you to be considered "fully vaccinated".
"Once all adults have had a reasonable chance to get their booster jab, we intend to change this exemption to require a booster dose,"
While many of us predicted this would be the case, it is the first time any British politician has actually said it out loud, and in front of parliament too.

This incredibly cynical "evolving definition" of "fully vaccinated" is not a new phenomenon, and is not isolated to the UK either.

Israel changed their definition of "fully vaccinated" to include the booster months ago. New Zealand's ministry of health is "considering" doing the same, as is Australia.

The EU isn't far behind either, with proposals in place to make travel dependent on having a third dose.

The US hasn't formally adopted a new definition yet, but you'd have to be blind not to see the signs. Just yesterday the LA Times headlined:
Should the definition of 'fully vaccinated' be changed to include a booster shot?
An article on Kaiser Health News asks the same thing.

Tony Fauci is quoted in the Independent as saying it's only a matter of time before the definition is updated:
"It's going to be a matter of when, not if" getting a booster shot will be considered being "fully vaccinated," Dr Fauci said.
Opinion pieces are already appearing asking "is it safe to hangout with the unboosted"? (This headline was so unpopular, the Atlantic changed it only a couple of hours after it was published).

WHO science officials: Omicron spreading faster but not exactly sure why

Omicron
© unknown
The Omicron coronavirus variant is more transmissible than the Delta strain and reduces vaccine efficacy but causes less severe symptoms according to early data, the World Health Organization said Sunday.

The Delta variant, first identified in India earlier this year, is responsible for most of the world's coronavirus infections.

But South Africa's discovery of Omicron — which has a large number of mutations — last month prompted countries around the world to impose travel bans on southern African countries and reintroduce domestic restrictions to slow its spread.

Comment: More fearmongering.

Omicron doesn't "make the jabs less effective". The jabs are tightly aimed at particular features of one strain or another. As omicron represents a slightly different profile than the narrow one the 'boosters' are targeting, of course the jab will be less effective. Another argument for allowing natural immunity to function. One's natural immune system takes a more comprehensive structural inventory of an infectious agent, thus it's more easily able recognize and deal with subsequent variants.

Nature knows what it is doing.

Omicron appears to 'evade' some protection from COVID vaccines, Fauci says

Anthony Fauci said that while the new COVID-19 variant appears to evade the average COVID-19 vaccine, Booster shots have been helping to deal with the virus.
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday said "sobering" preliminary studies show the Omicron variant of COVID-19 appears to evade some of the protection provided by vaccines.

But the White House chief medical adviser added that at least booster shots appear to help increase efficacy against the variant.

"The thing that's important is that [Omicron] appears to be able to evade some of the immune protection of things like monoclonal antibodies, convalescent plasma and the antibodies that are induced by vaccines. That's the sobering news," Fauci told ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week."

Objective:Health - 1 in 40 US Children Affected by Autism - CDC

O:H header
With the talk of the pseudo-pandemic dominating the headlines for the last 2 years, other important health topics have been brushed aside (and the O:H team have been guilty of this as well). But recently the CDC quietly released their regularly updated autism prevalence numbers to the public. By their estimates, autism now affects 1 in 40 US children.

Remember autism? Remember how the numbers have been dramatically rising for years, yet researchers interested in maintaining the status quo have continued to blame it on 'better diagnostic tools'? Remember how despite their denials, we're staring down the barrel of an autism epidemic and will soon face a society with a massive proportion of the population unable to function normally? Remember that?

Well, we remember. Join us for this episode of Objective:Health for a rousing discussion about the building wave of autism on the planet - where it comes from, where it's going and what can be done about it.

Pfizer documents reveal variety of vaccine side effects

Documents released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reveal that drugmaker Pfizer recorded nearly 160,000 adverse reactions to its Covid-19 vaccine in the initial months of its rollout.

The documents were obtained by a group of doctors, professors, and journalists calling themselves Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency, who filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the FDA for their release.

The first tranche of documents reveal that, as of February 2021, when Pfizer's shot was being rolled out worldwide on an emergency basis, the drugmaker had compiled more than 42,000 case reports detailing nearly 160,000 adverse reactions to the jab.

Another study finds natural immunity protects better against infection than the Pfizer vaccine

antibody covid
At the end of August, a study was published showing that natural immunity provides much better protection against infection than the Pfizer vaccine. It was described by UCL's Francois Balloux as "a bit of a bombshell".

Subsequent studies have compared natural and vaccine-induced immunity at the cellular level. One found that infection-induced antibodies "exhibited superior stability and cross-variant neutralisation breadth" than vaccine-induced antibodies, suggesting that people who'd already been infected had better immunity against the then-novel Delta variant.

However, as I noted in my write-up of the "bombshell" study, its findings still needed to be replicated. After all, certain datasets or methods of analysis can sometimes yield quirky results, which don't survive independent empirical tests.
